West Yorkshire Spinners The Croft Shetland Tweed
Regular price $18.00
Crofting is integral to the landscape, cultural heritage and social economy of the Shetland Islands. It bonds people and places in a unique way, preserving livelihoods and age old traditions.
The Croft Shetland Tweed is produced from 100% Shetland Island Wool, a fibre celebrated for its fineness, warmth and strength. The high levels of crimp and wave in the fleece make it ideal for a hand knitting yarn. The Croft has a soft and silky handle that retains a lot of durability particularly suited to the new tweed collection.
